Marked in over 100 countries worldwide, World Book Day is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading.
This year’s World Book Day takes place on Thursday, March 2nd, 2017, with Darlington Libraries putting on a range of events to mark the occasion.
Suzy Hill, Bookstart and Library Literacy Coordinator, said: “Reading isn’t just something we do to get information and learn new things – books can open up whole new worlds which the reader can enjoy.
“We hope as many people as possible will join in our celebrations for World Book Day and hope it will inspire more people to pick up a book and read.”
